So, I've managed to survive my first week of college on my own. Hallelujah!
I honestly wasn't sure I would be able to handle living on my own. I've never been very disciplined, and I thought I would slip right back into the horrible habits I had back at home ... procrastinating, leaving my shit around the house, screwing up my priorities ... but surprisingly, I've been able to manage to keep things from exploding in my face. I'm staying on top of my work, I'm managing to hop between two campuses with the local bus route, and the apartment doesn't look like a bomb went off. In fact, it's actually staying rather clean.
You have no idea how relieved I am. I'm actually pretty proud of myself ... only time will tell if this keeps up, but right now, I've got a renewed sense of self-confidence, which is something I haven't had in years. Who knows, maybe I'll even start up my art again!
(... Well, maybe I'm getting carried away on that one. I don't have any means of drawing on the computer anymore ... Well, I'll make it one of my goals to replace the tablet and start doing art again. I really DO want to get back into it, I miss it so much ...)
That's it for now, I suppose.
